Due to the extremely positive feedback received regarding the Plenary 13 Unconference held last April and the perspective that an Unconference meeting has a significant role in shaping the direction of RDA, we have decided to include it again in the Plenary 14 programme. For this time, however, we want to give you, our members, the opportunity to have a hands-on role in leading the event itself. If you are interested or have experience in conducting an Unconference, we want to hear from you.
The FAIR principles are about making research data Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable. Data born FAIR requires FAIR skills, practices and services governed by appropriate policies, but what could these be?
This special one-day workshop to be held September 11, 2019 in Washington DC at the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, is focused on the wave of activities related to making data “FAIR” (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable). Featuring keynote speaker, Dr. Barend Mons, head of the International Support and Coordination Office of the GO FAIR Initiative and member of the Board on Research Data and Information (BRDI), as well as numerous other leading experts representing various disciplines and geographies, this event is an excellent opportunity for collaboration while hearing directly about FAIR progress.
